PostPosted: Fri Mar 08, 2013 12:59 pm 
I put an image of Virgo galaxies (4" refractor in New Mexico) in the gallery that does not really show any detail.

I have broken it down into 12 images on my website - here is the link: http://leylandobservatory.squarespace.com/observing-log/2013/3/8/virgo-galaxies-156-x-234-minutes-of-arc.html

This is the first twelfth of the image:

What an amazing amount of detail from such a small scope. I guess it must be sat on top of a mountain somewhere and not on someones rooftop in Mexico City then.

Nice one Len
